ROBBINSDALE, Minn. - The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office says the woman found dead along with a man at a Robbinsdale home is a homicide victim.
Authorities Monday identified the woman as 27-year-old Jennifer Michelle Smith, who died of multiple gunshot wounds. Robbinsdale Police Chief Steve Smith also indentified the suspected gunman, 73-year-old Ronald H West.
Chief Smith says Smith and West had shared a relationship for at least 10 years, perhaps as long as 14 years, but would not say if that relationship was romantic.
Robbinsdale police say a gun was recovered at the scene Friday. The Chief says the woman's preschool-age son found the bodies and went to a neighbor's house.
